Owner description: Some may find it over-powering, but if you're looking for where everybody is, then Pub Street it is. Lined with restaurants and bars selling cheap beer and reasonable food. Later on, the music starts thumping and there's often almost a party atmosphere. People watching is free.

“Siem Reap's Time Square”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

One thing I miss the most bout Cambodia is definitely Pub Street which is undoubtedly the best place to hang out in Siem Reap from 6pm to 3am. I found the atmosphere on Pub Street to be so uniquely laid back and full of life that I made it a point to go there every night during my 3-week stay in Siem Reap. There was never a time where I felt unsafe (or anywhere else in Siem Reap for that matter). However, one thing that I was bothered by was this persistent little girl beggar (holding a sickly baby in her arms) who managed to fool me and my sister's fiance into spending $30 on powered milk at the convenience store (below X-Bar) one night. Later that same night we saw her pull the same trick to another group of poor unsuspecting tourists. We put two and two together and figured she was employed by the owner of that convenience store to trick tourists into spending money in his store. DON'T BE FOOLED AND DON'T BUY ANYTHING IN THAT STORE!

Some of my favorite places:

X-BAR - Great atmosphere and good place to mingle with other tourists and/or play a game of pool or foosball. Good music ranging from Alternative rock, House and Hip-Hop depending on the night. OPEN UNTIL SUNRISE (5AM). CHEAP BEER!

Temple Club - More like a pool bar than an actual club but a great place to meet other tourists from all over the world. Nice atmosphere. Good music. Hot dancefloor. LOVE IT! Oh, and CHEAP BEER!

Angkor What? - The place of choice for young backpackers wanting to mingle and dance the night away. Considering how small the place is, it can get crowded pretty quick.....and incredibly humid. Nice friendly atmosphere and good music. AND CHEAP BEER!

“Constant aggressive hawkers for tuk tuks”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Constant aggressive hawkers for tuk tuks, massage parlors, shops, lady boom boom, drugs, etc. Best for teens and the lager louts. Tattoos optional.

“Cheap Eats and cool place”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Pub Street is where you go at night to get some dinner and stroll along the street taking in the night of Siem Reap. I loved Pub Street it has everything you could want, food,drink and night markets you can stroll though. It is crowded but at the same time I didn't have a problem walking the street alone or with friends. This street is great to enjoy the atmosphere of Siem Reap at night. Check it out and grab some good food at Cambodian Soup Restaurant.

“Many other tourist.”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

If you like a crowded place, go to Pub Street. To many people, to much waiting time. Many restaurants, but very similar.
